Nicaragua guide.
In the North Central Mountains are the source of huge rivers that run down to the Mosquito Coast, a region of dense rainforest on the Caribbean coast, where trees often reach a height of 200ft. Lake Nicaragua has 310 beautiful islands the largest of which, Ometepe is a major tourist magnet. The twin Corn Islands in the Caribbean are also beautiful. Fringed with white coral and palm trees they too are popular with holidaymaker's. The climate varies according to altitude, with the Pacific lowlands always extremely hot but fresh and green during the wet season. The Mostquito Coast is hot and wet for most of year and the mountains cooler and pleasant.

Corn Islands.
Known as the Islas de Maíz, the Corn Islands are found in the Caribbean Sea, east of the port city of Bluefields, and consist of two small islands, Big Corn Island and Little Corn Island. Once a haven for buccaneers, these day, the islands, especially Big Corn Island, are much loved places with the tourists, due to their beautiful, clear blue waters, white powdery beaches, coral reefs, water sports and relaxed way of life.

Granada City Tour.
Sitting on the shores of Lake Nicaragua is the historical city of Granada, a place that’s survived many attacks by French and British pirates, Nicaragua’s third largest city and Lake Nicaragua’s centre of commerce. Visitors will find that Granada has been a kind of fortress to Nicaragua’s upper classes, providing products such as soap, clothing and furniture. There are also quite a few elegant buildings and churches within the city, which can be seen in style, by relaxing in a horse-drawn carriage, the old way of travel.

Las Isletas.
Made up of 356 small islands, Las Isletas, found in Lago de Nicaragua, contains a vast variety of birds. Another feature visitors may be interested in is the small fortress found on the island of San Pablo, built by the Spaniards to protect themselves against British pirates, way back in the 18th century. The island of Zapatera is a national park and one of Nicaragua's most important archaeological regions, where visitors can see ancient tombs and other formations. On the island of El Muerto, cheerfully known as the ‘Island of the Dead’, visitors will find more tombs and fascinating rock carvings.

Mombotour Canopy Tour.
On the outskirts of Granada is Cutirre Farmhas, a working coffee farm. Visitors can while away the hours here, strolling through the plantation and can even get a birds eye view of the place with the bizarre Mombotour Canopy Tour. Visitors will sit high up in the treetops, to view the farm’s plantations from a different angle, with mountain cedars, huge ciebas and other trees, creating shade, within the plantation. Visitors will wear harnesses and once they’ve climbed a ladder into one tree, will just glide easily across the forest to the next tree, via help of the harness equipment!

Volcano Tours.
One great trip to take while in Nicaragua, is to two of its volcanoes, on the island of Ometepe, located in Lake Nicaragua. The first is Concepcion, rising 4,430 feet above sea level; the volcano forms the northwest part of Ometepe and has erupted around 24 times! The other volcano, Madera, is 3,833 feet high and is found at the opposite end of the island. Madera is an inactive volcano, totally enveloped by coffee plantations and rain forests and within its crater is a stunning blue lagoon, an amazing sight every time round!
